Hello,

Simple question: Would it, theoretically, be possible to write a RB plugin in an other language than C++?

E.g.: Java, Python, C, RB itself?

Thank you!

Any one will do if it can produce native code DLLs with specific entry point and you port the SDK.

C is already supported by the SDK, by the way.

Maybe I don't understand you very well.

But I guess that means no? Because for example RB itself, can't produce natve code DDLs?
And how do we know wich entry points are needed?

If you'd use some other language like D or fortran, you'd have to take the SDK in C and translate it. Including the entry points.
